oven baked fried chicken and other oxymorons

I felt inspired by Cooks Illustrated’s Cooking Light Spring 2008 special release and made their Oven Baked Fried Chicken this evening for dinner.


The crusting did not stick particularly well, but the end taste was fantastic.

Accompanying the chicken was a salad with Ina Garten‘s Green Goddess Dressing (Gavin deemed the salad “bland” and proclaimed he liked “tangier” dressings), I think the dressing would make a better veggie dip than salad dressing.


We both agreed the corn bread was best used as stuffing for the Cornish Game Hens, and was not all that great (or corn bread tasting) on its own.
